Britney Spears, like Amanda Bynes, spent some time in a psychiatric ward. But in addition to her alleged mental health issues, she also abused substances. The California Court of Appeals court confirmed in 2016 that the pop star had a problem. Family accused her former friend and manager Sam Lutfi of fueling the issue, while he claimed he tried to get the singer clean. According to the court, Lutfi agreed to manage Britney only if she stopped using and he was allowed to use K9 dogs to keep her on track. She ended up using anyway and lost custody of her two sons. She is currently sober.
